Dr. Joe worked a variety of jobs before becoming a pediatric specialist. He was a lifeguard, counselor, tutor, and a high school biology teacher for six years. He received four awards for outstanding teaching in Maryland. Looking for a change, he applied to dental school.
After completing his DDS degree in Virginia, he entered a pediatric dental residency at the University of Minnesota. He completed the residency in 2008 and has been practicing as a specialist ever since.
Dr. Joe loves his job and enjoys an excellent rapport with children of all ages.
Dr. Joe treasures spending time with his wife and three children. He likes weightlifting and running. He is passionate about skiing in the Rockies and freshwater fishing in Suffolk.
Dr. Brett aspired to be a dentist from a very young age; learning from his father and role model, Dr. Joe. He enrolled in James Madison University before completing his DDS at the Virginia Commonwealth School of Dentistry. During these years, Dr. Brett found that he had a passion for working with children, and completed the pediatric dentistry selective program between the Children’s Hospital of Richmond and VCU.
He and his family are very excited to have joined the Suffolk community, and look forward to many years serving Southeast Virginia.
After graduation, Dr. Brett moved to Suffolk with his wife, Emily, and their son, Owen. Time spent with his family is by far Dr. Brett’s favorite pastime. When not spending quality time with his wife and son, Dr. Brett loves to play sports and games of all kinds, but most of all, he likes playing the drums.
